Reliance Info shifts staff to Knowledge City
MUMBAI, Oct. 22
RELIANCE Infocomm has shifted over 3,000 employees from its various offices in Mumbai to its new 132-acre office in satellite city,Navi Mumbai.
This space which the Reliance group bought from ICI several years ago has been developed by it into what it now calls a "knowledge city.''
The employees were moved from the Reliance Centre at Ballard Estate in South Mumbai, from Sri Ram Mills in South Central Mumbai and also from the Bandra-Kurla complex in the city, a company spokesperson said.
The new office complex has been christened Dhirubhai H Ambani Knowledge city by his wife, Ms Kokilaben D. Ambani.
The 132-acre corporate township had 13 corporate blocks with almost two-million-sq.ft. built-up area; a 29-room guesthouse, a swimming pool, multi-cuisine food courts, a 24 x 7 medical centre, 15 acres of lawn and green, and a eight-acre natural lake, said the spokesperson.
The Reliance group claims that it is one of the single largest corporate townships in the country.
The National Network Operations Centre (NOC) of Reliance Infocomm has also been inaugurated. It is customised to handle the entire gamut of the company's products across India.
Several infotech companies have moved to Navi Mumbai where employees can be provided residential space that is closer to their place of work. It is also less expensive and spacious than the island city of Mumbai and saves them several hours of commuting every day.
Reliance Infocomm too had taken residential space in Navi Mumbai for some of its senior employees; its human resources department continued to assist its employees in finding residential premises in that area, the spokesperson said.
